Gosh I am so sorry that you have been waiting so long.We had to wait 3 months.Surgery was set for 2 months later than that even, but Kathleen had another stroke so they moved her surgery date up.I know how hard the waiting is, there were times I thought it was almostt unbearable. I would watch Kathleen every morning to be sure "everything was working".We worked so hard at keeping her healthy and hydrated.Kathleens Primary Dr.knows about the threat that dehydration would be to Kathleen and he would take a stomache flu very seriously,even if it meant sending her to the ER and hydrate her.We have already discussed these concerns with him.Luckily Kathleen has been healthy jsut a couple of colds and low fever which we almost ended up in the hospital because she wasn't eating or drinking for a while,but just when the Dr, was getting worried she started to drink again.I can only imagine how fustrating it is to be held back becasue of "red tape"!!! I will keep your family in our prayers.It has been a year for us and sometimes it feels like yesterday and sometimes it feels like a liftime has passed.Please keep us posted, and know that you are doing everything you can and more.
